Abstract

Chronic granulomatous disease (CGD) is an X-linked/ autosomal recessive primary immunodeficiency disorder characterized by recurrent infections. The diagnosis is primarily based on simple Nitrobluctetrazolium dye reduction test. We describe here an unusual case of an 8 year old girl, as the disease is X-linked in most of the cases.
